10.15am - 11.45am

Relax your way to better health through Yoga Nidra

with Nanna Coppens 
10.15am - 11.45am
Is there a difference between resting and relaxing? Yoga Nidra literally means yogic sleep. More precisely it is the art of deeply relaxing body and mind so that the thought processes slow down completely while remaining conscious throughout. In the last few years it has gained popularity as a therapeutic tool to alleviate stress and anxiety, but it is much more than that. 

Yoga Nidra is a spiritual practice that can lead you back to your true essence without the resistance you may experience during meditation. The only requirement is that you stay conscious throughout the process. Nanna Coppens will facilitate a transformative and deeply nurturing experience of Yoga Nidra.

Know Thyself and Transform Habits into Choices   

with Louise Rowan

Is it possible to choose how we respond to, rather than react to, life? In this workshop you will learn powerful techniques including yoga, meditation and affirmation to help change unhelpful patterns of thought and behaviour.  Learn how to detach more easily from the emotional pull of relationships and situations that trigger your stress levels and leave you feeling drained.

Find Your Voice, Raise Your Energy and Spark Your Passion for Life

Meditation for Successful Living

with Nigel & Orina Murphy
2.15pm - 3.45pm

Can meditation be simple and yet also profound? Dru Meditation is about finding a still inner point from which you can look at the world in a different way and discover a new perspective on your life.

This workshop is an ideal introduction to Dru Meditation and will give you a practical toolkit of techniques that can be integrated effortlessly into your daily life to help you to sleep better: decrease stress and anxiety; improve memory; slow the aging process and so much more.


The Subtle Science of Longevity

with Chandra Goswami
2.15pm - 3.45pm

In his Yoga Sutras, Patanjali conveyed the importance of a personal daily practice, and delineated this into simple stages known as the 8 Limbs. 
Looked at more closely, the journey through these stages gives us important clues to increasing our energy (prana shakti) the longevity of our life, and the subsequent positive influence we have on those around us. 

In this workshop we will explore the power of:

  • sadhana, or dedicated practice, to bring steadiness and peace of mind
  • seva, or selfless service to balance our own energy and the energy around us
  • sangha, or anchoring our sense of belonging and shared purpose with like-minded friends
  • punya, or the act of manifesting positive circumstances in our lives

Yoga and Dance

with Kate Carter
2.15pm - 3.45pm

Can I build strength and suppleness, without it feeling like a workout? Dru Dance is yoga and dance combined, choreographed to uplifting music. It's stress-busting and energetic and focuses on dynamic, flowing movement to create both strength and flexibility and improve your muscle tone and stability. 

This cleverly designed fusion of dance and yoga will help you to feel more alert,  energetic and feel great about yourself and it can also improve your memory.

Yoga Therapy for Mental Wellbeing

with Sylvia Barrington
2.15pm - 3.45pm

When our internal Prana Vayus are out of balance our physical, mental and emotional bodies are thrown into chaos. Using Dru Yoga therapeutically you can help yourself and your students develop a strong connection with our internal life force and allow wellbeing to be powerfully brought back to balance. 

Working with flowing postures and using Dru Yoga principles creates a powerful tool for health. Find out how to work with your students at a deeper level to establish long lasting change.  (Open to postgraduate level).

Thank you, this was lovely. It was great to have your teaching in my home! Great production also - good picture, good sound, easy to fast forward and great that I could see what was happening as I fast forwarded so I knew when to stop. I also like the way Dru Online is bringing us more specific subjects like this one, that before we have only seen in the workbooks. Thank you.
